  1. Is Christianity Really the Problem?

  7. Is Christianity the Problem? • Christians help the needy, the sick, etc., and expect nothing in return (Lk. 6:35; 14:12-14) • Christians obey the laws of the land and pay their taxes (Mt. 17:24-27; 22:21; Rom. 13:1-7) with but one exception (Acts 5:29)

  8. Is Christianity the Problem? • Christians believe in sexual purity and marital faithfulness (Heb. 13:4; Mt. 19:6; Rom. 7:2-4) • Christians work to be honest and fair employees and employers (Eph. 6:5-9)

  9. Is Christianity the Problem? • Christians believe in speaking the truth in love and teaching others without coercion (Mk. 16:15-16; Eph. 4:15; 2 Tim. 2:24-26) • Being a Christian is best for everyone (1 Tim. 4:8)
